[image]Oil Slick Along the Spanish Coast - Image copyright
This close-up image of the northwest coast of Spain was captured on November 21, 2002, by the IKONOS satellite from 423 miles in space. The area was very cloudy and this was one of only two areas where there were breaks in the clouds. The coastline was in shadow at the time of the overpass, but several dark-colored fingers of oil are visible reaching through white waves towards the cliffs along the shoreline.The area pictured here is just north of Cape Finisterre, which is the westernmost part o...
